Georgina’s shortlist for Upstate NY

What are you up to these days?

Honestly, my schedule is pretty light at the moment. I was working so hard in my thirties, I burned out. The Millbrook area provided me the rest and tranquility I was so deeply craving. When we sold our family house in Southampton, a friend offered me her cottage in Millbrook for a month and I was hooked. I rented my own cottage the following fall and I haven’t looked back. I started horseback riding again and getting back in the saddle, pardon the pun, is the best thing I’ve done for my mental and physical health in years! Lately, I’ve been volunteering for local organizations and events like the Dutchess Land Conservancy and Fitch’s Corner Horse Trials.
